      First competition event at Prescott starts tomorrow and for those as daft as me there is live streaming from Bentley Drivers club race meeting Silverston. No Ron or Jim this year, but you might get to see Tim ??

      Just to let you all know Oliver has just has just put the footage of this years BDC Silverstone Fiscar race on YouTube. He had an interesting race so well worth watching.

      Well done Josh. Possibly a Class win at Prescott this afternoon. Not an Allard win but a fine bit of peddling in the 911 race car.

      For those looking for great footage from Prescott. Their live streaming cameras views give great shots. Not only do you get a good idea of lines people use but you get to see our club president’s class win peddling this 911 race car ( No70 about 1/2 way through the film ).

      Ron, just to let you know I have booked an entry for Prescott on Saturday 03 October but I’m wondering if that is the best day? When I booked it Sunday 04 October wasn’t available to book on line but I see today it now is. James Smith mentioned he was planning to enter

      Anyone else entered/planning to enter?

      Second YouTube club is olivers race (longish film) but you do get to see the stalled start / off road grass tracking to miss a spinning lotus and the fight from the back of the pack to Win ( even get to see Tim as well)

      Jeez! That drive in the J2 is phenomenal! What an armful that car is. Full kudos to the driver👍.

      And yep – it’ll be great to see the Ballamy Special on an outing…

      Looks as if we’ll have Dave, James, Chris and me at Prescott on Sunday the 4th. Chris also attending on Saturday the 3rd.

      I’ve had a few tuning problems with the Cad in the K1 but having just had the ignition tested on a diagnostic machine where it was considered ok the recommendation was it might be carburation and to fit a new 600cfm Holly in place of the old one.

      I ordered it yesterday from Real Steel who had one on the shelf and it arrived this morning  £450 inc p&p – that’s service!

      Now I just need to fit it and get the car back to the rolling road for fine tuning before driving down to Prescott. At least that’s all I hope I need to do and that it happens as easy as I hope – no chance there then !!

      This weekend is the Prescott American week-end. We have a few members on the Hill over the weekend. For those with internet in their workshops can watch live action on YouTube over the weekend whilst still Allarding and keep dry

      May the For(d)ce be with you, fellow Allardistes. And for those with Cad or Hemi power, just concentrate on keeping your wheels on the tarmac and facing uphill😅.

      These links to live streaming action at Prescott are brilliant Ron, many thanks.

      I had hoped to be there tomorrow but with the K having overheated, lost oil pressure and popped its clog, well core plug actually, it’s now being dismantled in my workshop to see what the cause was.

      Looking forward to seeing Chris and Dave on the hill tomorrow if you would put the live link up again and we can watch it in the dry with a drink whilst they battle the hill in the rain !

      Great viewing, just sorry the K wasn’t well enough to join in, even in the wet.
      <p class=””>Well done Dave, Chris and Mark, not bad times considering the weather.</p>
